    Seven Mortal Sins TV Anime Reschedules Episode 5 for Compilation Episode

    Koby
    By Koby,

    mZBxqh3.jpgThe official Twitter account of Hobby Japan's Seven Mortal Sins (sin Nanatsu no Taizai) television anime revealed on Wednesday that the series' fifth episode will not air as scheduled this Friday. The "Episode 4.5" compilation episode, titled "Masani Akuma no Shogyō..." (Exactly a Demon's Deed...), will air instead of the fifth episode. The anime's staff plan to air the fifth episode "next time."

    The anime premiered on AT-X on April 14, and it also airs on Tokyo MX and BS11 in Japan. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs, and Funimation is offering a simuldub. The anime's official website lists the series with 12 episodes.

    Crunchyroll describes the series:

    Because she committed the sin of pride against God, the Great Angel Lucifer was cast into Hell and became a Fallen Angel. Also at the lowest level of Hell, the hierarchy of demons have sealed away Lucifer's powers. Lucifer had lost everything, but along with the Demon King of Envy, Leviathan, that admires Lucifer and a high school girl she met on Earth named Totsuka Maria, she becomes the Demon King of Pride Lucifer and begins her journey to revenge on the Seven Demon Kings of Hell. A book of Revelations with the “Seven Deadly Sins” portrayed by beautiful Demon Kings is about to begin.

    Kinji Yoshimoto (Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin, Plastic Little) is directing the anime at TNK and Artland, and he is also credited for story concept, series composition, and color design. (Eri Umemoto is credited for color design alongside Yoshimoto.) Masashi Suzuki (The Sacred Blacksmith, Rail Wars!, Queen's Blade: Grimoire) is the main writer.


    A Deadpool cartoon is coming to FXX from Atlanta creator Donald Glover

    By DabDeity710,

    fFOrw6V.jpgDeadpool is coming to television. FXX has ordered a 10-episode animated series about the Marvel character from Atlanta creator Donald Glover and his brother Stephen. The series is expected to air sometime in 2018.

     

    The brothers will serve as executive producers, showrunners, and writers for the as-of-yet-untitled series, which will be produced by Marvel Television for FXX. It’s not clear how the show will fit into the growing universe of Marvel films and television shows, but its sister channel FX is already home to another Marvel show, Legion. No cast for the show has been announced, and it’s not known if Ryan Reynolds, who portrayed the character in last year’s blockbuster film, will be involved.

     

    Last year, FX head John Landgraf revealed that FXX will be “aggressively” working on more animated shows, explaining that shows like Cartoon Network’s Rick & Morty was a good example of how the format could be successful with adults. The network is already home to Archer, an animated action-comedy about a misfit group of covert operatives. Given that last year’s Deadpool made a splash for its raunchy humor and profanity, an edgy, animated version of the character feels like it would be at home in that space.

     

    For his part, Glover is no stranger to FX: his show Atlanta gained considerable acclaim last year. Deadpool adds to his considerably busy schedule, which has pushed Atlanta’s second season back to 2018. In addition to appearing in this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, he’s portraying Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo anthology film, and is voicing Simba in the live-action remake of The Lion King.

Kennedy, Kevin Dorman as Chris Redfield, and Erin Cahill as Rebecca Chambers.

     

    Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-, Ultraman X) is directing the film at Marza Animation Planet, with a script by Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, School-Live!). Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) is composing the music. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) is credited as executive producer. Kenji Shibasaki is handling the sound design, Hiroyasu Shinohara is producing, Kosei Sugimoto is the associate producer, and Kei Miyamoto is the co-producer.

    Edge of Tomorrow Sequel Film Gets Title

    Koby
    By Koby,

    0TLzI1D.jpgDirector Doug Liman revealed in an interview with film news website Collider on Sunday that the sequel to the live-action Edge of Tomorrow film will be titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Liman noted that the film's production is "not an if, it's a when," and that lead actors Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are "excited" about the sequel.

    The sequel's title calls back to the first film's "Live. Die. Repeat" tagline, which had more prominence than the film's actual title in some promotional materials and the home video release.

     

    xGR7Uhs.jpgLiman is attached to direct the sequel, and Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally are slated to produce the film. Joe Shrapnel (Race, Frankie & Alice) and Anna Waterhouse (Race, On the Shoulders of Giants) have been hired to write the sequel. Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter (and Rogue Nation director) Christopher McQuarrie is "in talks" to be a producer on the film, and he is developing the script with Shrapnel and Waterhouse.

     

    Cruise had said in July 2015 that he pitched an idea for a sequel to the film. He presented the idea when he met with McQuarrie and Liman.

     

    Edge of Tomorrow adapts the novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. The film stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Kick Gurry, Bill Paxton, Kidus Henok, Tony Way, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The film opened in the United States in June 2014.

     

    Viz Media published Sakurazaka's novel in English to launch its Haikasoru imprint for Japanese science fiction and fantasy in 2009. The book's cover art was drawn by Yoshitoshi ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei). Viz also released a one-volume full-color graphic novel adaptation of the story in 2014. Nick Mamatas (Move Under Ground) adapted the story and Lee Ferguson (Green Arrow, Miranda Mercury) drew the art.

    The novel also spawned a manga by artist Takeshi Obata (Hikaru no Go, Death Note, Bakuman.) and writer Ryōsuke Takeuchi (ST&RS) in Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 2014. Sakurazaka himself said in 2014 that he is working on a sequel novel.
